Sellers comments:

Engines will currently hit 2800 rpm which is 200 over redline. Props are currently being tweaked at a professional prop shop. They will be tuned to class 1 and according to calculations, cruise should raise approx 1 Knot at any given rpm. This should also improve fuel economy.

The engines should still hit 2700 rpm to prevent overloading. It will be the 3rd pitch adjustment since i have owned the boat and this should be a perfect fit.
